Oblique 2nd may

Thanks to everyone who made it down to Oblique at Undertone on the 2nd, it was a great night and we hope you had as much fun as us! Just a quick run down on the evening's entertainment- I know it's unusual to post about your own events, but never mind....

Oblique welcomed two guests for our May event. First up was Holodeck and One Mission DJ Potter, who warmed the crowd nicely with grooving set of tech house that built the vibe and got bodies moving on the dance floor. Following Potter were Trimsound, performing live for the first time on Cardiff on the back of an extensive European tour.

Trimsound is a netlabel and live project run by Tom Ellis (Moon Harbour, Morris Audio, Mindtours) and Leif (Frankie, Telegraph, Archipel). For Oblique, the guys not only played live as Trimsound, but Tom played his own live set and Leif played a DJ set to finish the night. Working off two laptops, controllers, bass guitar, and CDJ's, a fantastic set of funked up tech-house and minimal followed that had the crowd cemented to the dance floor for over two hours. For me, the set showed the creative potential of digital DJing- I've posted on this subject before about Kevin Gorman's 'Elements' release- I've been sceptical but watching these guys demonstrate how interactive music can become when performed live was inspiring. For anyone who doesn't know their sound, check out the mixes below.

Thanks again to everyone who made it down, hope to see you next time!
